Sūrat al-Balad (Arabic: سورة البلد, "The City"), is the 90th Surah or chapter of the Qur'an. It is composed of 20 ayat (verses).
Period of revelation
Its subject matter and style resemble those of the earliest Surahs revealed at Mecca, but it contains a pointer which indicates that it was sent down in the period when the disbelievers of Makkah had resolved to oppose Muhammad, and made it lawful for themselves to commit tyranny and excess against him.
